NPR ^ | 8/27/14

Posted on 08/27/2014 7:17:25 AM PDT by Drango

California history textbooks will now be asked to cover "the significance of President Barack Obama's election," under a law signed this week by Gov. Jerry Brown. requires California's Instructional Quality Commission "to consider including, and recommending for adoption by the state board, instruction on the election of President Barack Obama and the significance of the United States electing its first African American President, as appropriate." The author, Democratic Assemblyman Chris Holden, said in a statement: "We want to make sure that future generations understand that the election of our nation's first African American president was a historic step in the effort towards equality and that previous elections involved intimidation and violence that prevented millions of African Americans from voting."

Sorry, but that’s a great idea... if they really teach the significance of a Communist takeover of a formerly more or less free country. Does the law also specify the details of the curriculum?

Indeed there is significance:

1: One can be president without ever having held a real job.
2. One can be president without proving his provinance.
3. One does not need above room temp IQ to be elected president.
4. One needs no morals to be elected president.
5. One’s friends can be as creepy, sleezy, and felonious as possible and it makes no difference.

If schools teach that, I’m in there with them.

Since they won’t note these two axioms:

OBAMA IS SLIME.
MEXIFORNIA IS DOOMED.

“Calif. Law Calls For Textbooks To Teach Significance Of Obama’s Election”

Great idea as long as they allow me to write that section.

I can see the opening sentence now:

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

If the country survives and turns around in 2016 the significance of Obama will be to reject liberalism. If Hillary wins, there will be no need for debate. The country can endure 8 years of insanity, but not 16.

If they are going to teach the significance of the election of the first fake black man, then they need to the significance of the election of the first genuinely gay president, James Buchanan.

“Significance”, that's OK, as long as they also include the fact that Mr. 0 is demonstrably “the worst president in the history of the republic”.

Personally, I think “the day the country committed suicide” is a pretty significant date and ought to be singled out in textbooks.

If it were really that significant...and so beneficial...would they need a law to make it happen?

The significance of the disaster of Obama election can be likened to the earth quake that destroyed San Francisco and took many lives.

Since the city was rebuilt the quake further points to human folly of not learning the lesson that a large quake or elected incompetent can do great harm. The people of California did not learn the lesson and would reelect Barack Obama and Jerry Brown.

No wonder California is such a mess. It’s so heavily propagandized. Most people cannot resist the relentless propaganda and simply accept it, believe it, and parrot it. The once-Golden state is undergoing Detroitization, and its hapless inhabitants have no idea what’s going on. When they find themselves submerged in a west coast Detroit, they still won’t know what happened. They’ll just continue to believe what they’re told, no matter how absurd. Propaganda is a powerful thing.

Were this so-called ‘historic’ event truly worth celebrating, it would be done so freely by all. Instead, it is mandated by a member of the celebrant’s political party. Just like Stalin and his stooges...

Isn't this a violation of the first amendment?.. you can't pass a law saying what you MUST say on a subject.. particularly a political subject.. what next the government in going to pass a law saying all citizen must spent 5 min a day publicly praising Dear Leader Obama.. have we REALLY become North Korea?

“along with the election of marvelous 0bama, an ugly side of racist America emerged. Funded by the Koch brothers, a racist TEA Party was formed by astroturfing.”

Obamunism. Orwell warned us about it.

No wonder the Democrats in California wanted to repeal the law against Communist and seditious teaching in California schools.

Here was my view of the "Significance" of Obama's getting the Democratic nomination in 2008. I doubt that the California schools would include something of this nature in their textgooks: An Unfortunate Milestone--The Accidental American.

Thirty years late, but California has now achieved "1984." Reality is something that is to be determined by Government.

The significance of the Obama election is that it marks the demise of the USA.

The most significant issue in his election is the demographic nightmare it heralds.

Easy. Voters were so eager to elect a black president, they elected the first pretty one who came along even though he had absolutely no qualifications.

History will judge Obama in terms of National and Domestic Security, economics, loss of individual rights, denial of health care benefits based on expected outcome, increased death rates because of slow and substandard care, destruction of the middle class and an infinite hap between the haves & have nots. There is so much more.

No wonder California is such a mess. It’s so heavily propagandized.

The logical result of single-party rule. California is a fiscal disaster, jobs are fleeing, immigrants are swarming, there's no water and this is the kind of nonsense that the overwhelming majority Democrat state government feels a pressing need to spend their time on.

Bait. Jerry Brown style bait trying to make the GOP bite so he can bag his limit of race card.

“.....was a historic step in the effort towards equality and that previous elections involved intimidation and violence that prevented millions of African Americans from voting.”

Democrats at their finest. Lying bastards

It is not over yet. He is evil beyond what most want to voice publicly. He is the test of the republic that was spoken of when our republic was forming

The founders did warned us of this, and tried to prevent it but never imagined that so many would want to destroy what they had forged with such strife.

He, and the liberal party, are what we where warned about. That the entire liberal party is so against what the founders imagined is completely at odds with a country based on the teachings of God.

This will get worse. Even if we got O and the libs out of power we will still feel the effects for generations. The longer it takes, the worse off we will be. Pray for us, we have so far to go.
